Vocabulary of the Greek NT

We are unable from our sources to throw any fresh light upon this word, which is so important in early Christian literature (see reff. in Sophocles Lex. s.v.), but for its Biblical usage see SH ad Romans 3:2, and for its application to the recently discovered ";Sayings of Jesus"; (P Oxy I. 1, IV. 654), see Two Lectures on the ";Sayings of Jesus"; by Drs. Lock and Sanday (Oxford, 1897) with the literature referred to there, and, more recently, H. G. E. White, The Sayings of Jesus from Oxyrhynchus (Cambridge, 1920).
